That said, Toronto is foolish to move Mac unless his salary demands are ridiculously unreasonable.
The beauty of MacArthur is that he is a young, talented productive, pending RFA forward with a ridiculously low $1.100,000 cap hit who can help Cup contending teams with limited cap room.
Therefore he should fetch a first round pick AND a good prospect, perhaps more if a bad contract is also sent to the Leafs.
Sure Mac has fit in tremendously well with the Leafs but good asset management dictates that Burke consider seizing an opportunity to Sell him while his value is uniquely high.
